Guide to the Kenneth J. Arrow Papers, 1939-2011

Collection Overview

The Kenneth J. Arrow papers, 1939-2011 (bulk 1980s-1995), document primarily the latter part of his career as an economist, professor, and Nobel Laureate. The collection provides a broad overview of his many professional activities; administrative activities for various associations and committees and for his universities; and political activism in research notes, draft papers and speeches, and correspondence. Arrow's career is especially distinguished by his contributions to the theory of social choice, including his book Social Choice and Individual Values, published in 1951, and his contributions to general equilibrium theory. For these achievements, Professor Arrow has been awarded the Johns Bates Clark Medal (1957) and the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics (1972), which he shared with Professor Sir John Hicks. With an eleven year interruption at Harvard University from 1968 to 1979, Professor Arrow has spent the largest portion of his career at Stanford University. He has served as president of the American Economics Association and the International Economics Association, and has also been a member of the National Academy of Sciences. Some of the larger and more salient files in the collection include research notes on general equilibrium theory in economics; consulting on global climate change and contingent valuation; correspondence with Frank Hahn, Leonid Hurwicz, Alain Lewis, and Lionel McKenzie; and notes from graduate courses with Harold Hotelling. Although the collection contains primarily professional papers, there are some personal files as well as some concerning politics and activism.

The Conferences, Lectures, and Speeches Series includes information on organizations such as the Santa Fe Institute, National Bureau of Economic Research, Social Choice and Welfare Conference, American Economics Association, and International Economics Association. General equilibrium theory material is in scattered files not only in this series but also in the Notes, Papers, and Research Series.

In the Committees and Consulting Series contain files on three extended projects on economic growth and policy, global climate change, and contingent valuation. Also, the American Economics Association, International Economics Association, and the National Academy of Sciences are represented. There is a subseries on economics journals.

The Correspondence and Personal Files Series includes correspondence with a number of eminent economists, including M. Allais, G. Debreu, M. Friedman, F. Hahn, J. Harsanyi, L. Hurwicz, T. Koopmans, L. McKenzie, R. Marschak, and R. Radner; with other scholars such as N. Chomskey, S.J. Gould, and J. Hirschleifer; with politicians, including D.P. Moynihan; as well as extensive notes and correspondence with some of Arrow's Ph.D. students, including A. Lewis.

In the Notes, Papers, and Research Series are notes on production functions, stability, uncertainty; economic theory, optimization, and decentralization; National Science Foundation grants; Social Choice and Multicriterion Decision-Making; and notes from courses with Harold Hotelling.

Departments of Economics are represented in the Stanford and Harvard Series, and the Miscellaneous Series has a folder on Arrow's Nobel Prize and other awards. The Politics and Activism Series contains files on the Middle East, arms control (especially Economists against the Arms Race), human rights, and UNESCO.

Additions to the collection have been intellectually integrated into their corresponding series but are physically housed separately in boxes 38-53.

This series will likely be of most interest to scholars of Professor Arrow's contributions to economic theory. While, like the other series, the bulk of this series dates after 1970, it does include files from earlier periods. The Class Notes and Theses Subseries contains notes from his undergraduate courses at City College of New York and graduate courses at Columbia University, including notes from Professor H. Hotelling's course in Mathematical Economics and a penultimate draft of his Masters Thesis. It also includes notes on meteorology in preparation for his work in the Army Air Corps. A subseries on Notes and Papers by Arrow also contains earlier work. The most extensive files in this subseries include notes on optimization and decentralization, a National Science Foundation project on production functions, stability, and uncertainty.

The rest of the series contains work dating after 1970. The Notes for papers by Arrow Subseries contains drafts and notes for specific papers. The Ongoing Grants Subseries contains several projects funded by the National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval Research. The Notes Subseries contains files of notes relating to various topics, but seemingly unconnected to any specific paper. The last subseries, Festschrift and papers in the history of economic thought, contains files on those activities.
